Viticulture and Wine Making
Electric No 1 is a field blend incorporating all white varieties grown at Carrick, including the odd rogue vine that has appeared courtesy of our nurserymen. It's a dry wine, textural rather than varietal.

Harvested on the same day in April, this wine was fermented in an old oak barrels before bottling. The fermentation used indigenous yeasts to dryness. Being a field blend there is no outstanding varietal character and the textural qualities dominate this wine.

With good acidity, the wine will age well for up to 5 years. It finishes dry making it an excellent food friendly wine.

The name derives from one of the gold dredges working the rivers around the Carrick site. At one stage there were over 150 dredges working the rivers of Central Otago.
